Parked near FP start on grass verge. Walked along footpath until level with hedge and then straight up to the well hidden pillar. Please note that best to walk south side of hedge. Pillar in good condition with limited views due to crop. Very busy road nearby.

Got access via the footpath from the corner of the Notch road going to Winstone from the A417. Today is turning into a rather hot one!

Walked along bridle way from bend in road. It's then just a short detour along hedge line. Spotted a very large Red deer on way back.

Centre missing, concrete plug. The field boundry N-S is no longer there, I followed the foot path from the bend in the road, then the hedge line WSW, pillar on the southern side of the hedge, noisy.

Short stretch of crops to walk through with care. Raining. Soaked from waist down. Had to change into dry boots and trousers on return to car.

Parked at rt-angle bend in minor road, 350m walk over stubble field directly to trig. Pillar found in good condition on S side field boundary enveloped in tall nettles, clear them from immediate locale. Cap missing, no plug; rear sight hole open. Road noise intrusive from nearby A417.

Second nearest extant pillar to home after Sapperton (TP5816). Relatively easy walk from minor road along bridleway (although field has been harvested and the ploughed earth is hard going especially after yesterday’s rain)! Pillar stands on south side of remains of hedge, with asphalt plug. FB faces S. North sighthole is open, all others plugged. A pleasant location with just a little noise from the A417 trunk road nearby, but views limited to the vast arable fields surrounding. Position logged from average of two readings from GPS device accurate to ±5m.

Parked on the minor road to the South and walked up a track in place for some BT cable laying before following the field boundary west. Had I had a map, I would have spotted the footpath and used that! Muddy! Me 253m

Visit to friends in Cheltenham enabled me to get some Glos' trigs. Road access is from Winstone,no direct access off A417. Needed wellies as ploughed field heavy going. uninspiring view on a dismal morning. Missing plug. At end of remains of a hedge.

Bored of driving so headed for the nearest trig in the GPS to the road (lazy or what!), anyway nice pleasent location, which a drive though some almost idealic villages (no map, just a GPS pointer!). Non original plain plug of sometype.

We took the same route as Rhayader Wanderer but now the field is full of 3 foot high beans, which are quite easy to pick a way through without causing damage. Plug replaced with some sort of resin infill.

My a first visit in middle England!! And I understand why, used the passing place on the road parallel to the A417 then followed the bridleway before cutting a sticky muddy plouged field to the trig. The east west fence still exists but the NS one is now an open field. Trig is in good shape but without a plug. (Note Keith logged his earlier visit after this entry hence comments)

In hedge in wide flat field. Private, but an easy walk from the lane.
